I encircle myself with friends, who bemuse but still amuse me,
Who stimulate and stir my imagination,
Whose very existence adds to my life’s essence;
Choosing to eliminate those who disturb my aura.
I prefer to avail myself of only those
Who barge into my life, full of vim and vigor.
Ready to slay dragons or soar on angel wings,
Saving rain forests or kittens trapped in trees.
I am elated to be part of camaraderie
Whose totality is comprised of love and goodwill,
Where freedom is a blessing as well as a choice,
Refusing to fathom a life devoid of such motivated stimuli.
